Trek Sensitive Insect Repellent Spray contains 20% Saltidin – an insect repellent that was developed as an effective alternative to DEET, and also known as Picaridin, Bayrepel or Icaridin. Many people find it more pleasant to use than DEET as it is odourless with a light, clean feel. A single application can protect the skin for up to 8 hours against mosquitoes and other flying insects. It is also effective against ticks, although in this instance it should be reapplied every 2.5 hours.
Trek Sensitive Insect Repellent is supplied in a plastic bottle with a pump action spray.
